The Crisis of the Confined a: A Conference in Romance Studies / Abstract Deadline 12/1/10

updated: 
Friday, October 22, 2010 - 2:10am
University of California, Berkeley

The Crisis of the Confined Body is a graduate student conference that will join five Romance languages (Catalan, French, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish), fostering a comparative approach to studies of the body in confinement, isolation and extraction. The conference will offer critical examinations of the body and its contingent relationship to spatial, temporal, cultural and/or linguistic parameters. A theme that lends itself to multiple fields, The Crisis of the Confined Body will promote interdisciplinary collaborations between the humanities, visual arts, and sciences, engaging points of overlap as well as lines of divergence. We encourage presentations that engage a comparative and/or interdisciplinary approach.

The D. H. Lawrence Society of North America invites you to attend the 12th international conference in Sydney, Australia, June 29-July 3, 2011. Our goal is to bring together scholars interested in all aspects of D. H. Lawrence's writing with those interested in its reception by modernist, post-modernist, and postcolonial writers. When Lawrence arrived in Sydney in 1922, two decades after Federation, Australia was consciously redefining its relation to its colonial past and imagining new nationalist futures, as Lawrence recognized in Kangaroo.

The Alien Topography of Ancient Rome in Postwar Film

American Comparative Literature Association Seminar, 31 March-3 April 2011, Vancouver BC [Deadline November 1]

The Alien Topography of Ancient Rome in Postwar Film

The legends and history of Greco-Roman antiquity have enjoyed a revival in cinema and television (300, Troy, Gladiator, Rome, Spartacus), and scholars have approached such works using the analytical tools of both classics and film studies. We suggest, however, that this interdisciplinary dialogue is due for development beyond film adaptation into a greater examination of film's use of ancient Rome's alien topography.
